Album Review

Early in his solo career, Sting defined himself as a man of taste, choosing to work with jazz musicians instead of rockers. Inevitably, this meant he walked the thin line between sophisticated pop and adult contemporary, but he did it with grace from 1985's Dream of the Blue Turtles to 1993's Ten Summoner's Tales. Unfortunately, Fields of Gold: The Best of Sting doesn't illustrate what a deft trick he pulled off with that quartet of albums. Naturally, Fields of Gold concentrates on his hit singles, just like any other greatest-hits collection, but Sting's material sounds surprisingly tame in this context. Sure, there is a number of great songs here — enough to state his case as a fine songwriter or to satisfy his casual fans. Still, these songs are safe choices and all share a similarly tranquil quality, which means the collection itself becomes a little monotonous. Nevertheless, Fields of Gold performs the necessary service of rounding up all of the big hits — "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free," "All This Time," "Fortress Around Your Heart," "They Dance Alone," "If Ever Lose My Faith in You," "Fragile," and an alternate version of "We'll Be Together" — and offering them on one disc, which is reason enough to make it worthwhile, even with its flaws.

Customer Reviews


個人的には、ポリスの頃の曲のほうが好きだったのですが このアルバムはとても素敵です! スティングの曲は、1曲がわりと長めなので アルバム全体もけっこう長い時間あると思いますが 聞いていて、全く飽きません。 とくに、Englishman in New York のメロディーラインは心にしみます。 ピアノが効いていて、雨の日、静かに何度でも聴きたくなりますよ。

It's Probably Me

映画「リーサル・ウエポン3」の主題歌になった「It's Probably Me」が、いい。 何度聞いてもいい。 ギターはクラプトン。サックスはデヴィッド・サンボーン。ピアノは今は亡きマイケル・ケイメン。 このバージョンはフェードアウトしてますが、「リーサル〜」のオリジナルサントラには、エンディングまでしっかり入ってるフルバージョンが収録されています。 6分30秒以上あります。 :-D よろしかったら。

How fragile we are .....

fragile.....割れ物の入った段ボール箱によく書いてありますね。 あの日、二人とも段ボール箱の中にいたら壊れずにすんだのかも。 鈴木重子さんのカバーも素敵です。オリジナルがいいからでしょう。 クールでそして暖かい。     名曲ですね。

After disbanding the Police at the peak of their popularity in 1984, Sting quickly established himself as a viable solo artist, one obsessed with expanding the boundaries of pop music. Sting incorporated heavy elements of jazz, classical, and worldbeat into his music, writing lyrics that were literate and self-consciously meaningful, and he was never afraid to emphasize this fact in the press. For such unabashed ambition, he was equally loved and reviled, with supporters believing that he was at...
